Thank you

Thanks to TRIO (Sylvia Leach) and United for flying us!! All my testing came back good. Echo was great (heart), oximetry great(sleep apnea), rheumatologist wants more testing next time. Im still trying to quit smoking. I’ve bought three packs in three weeks..about 3 a day..please pray for me on this. The Chantix is working too..plus Mayo gave me two more aids (inhaler, lozenges)to get me past those last three. They are amazing!! They are doing so much research!! If you want to quit smoking, I have lots of info on it!!

Mayo

August 19th, 2010 -- Posted in Appointments, Doctors, info, Updates | No Comments »

Mayo was great, got alot accomplished. Stephen tested, he was poked all over, had a CT, seen numerous docs, and unfortunatly, they wont be able to use his kidney. There is a small beneign tumor on his L kidney. <–they wont give me a bad one or leave him with a bad one. So next step is JK to test. My creatinine is at 2.6–its stabalized…when it hits 2.8, we will go back and JK test. Kudos to Stephen, he really tried. He is my hero anyways.

Back to Mayo

August 16-18 Im heading back to MN for more testing. Dobutamine echo, Oximetry and see a Rheumatologist to see why the Gout is so persistant.. Maybe they can help me get it under control. Im ready to get out and stay out of bed for awhile. Wish me luck..The United miles donor program  might be flying us which is a real plus cause that is a very long 12 hr drive.

Update:
Stephen is going to Mayo with me in Aug — he’s trying to be a match.
